The sixth book in M.C. Beaton's charming Travelling Matchmaker series. A damsel in distress and a confirmed bachelor - surely a match made in heaven! No coach journey is ever dull with Miss Hannah Pym aboard, and this one proves no exception as she meets the young and beautiful Miss Yvonne Grenier, who is fleeing the Terror in France. Charming but shy, Yvonne becomes quite frightened when a dangerous enemy also boards the stagecoach to York.
Luckily Miss Pym is on hand to propose a plan which will save Yvonne - and throw her into the arms of the wealthy and unattached Marquis of Ware!
Handsome and tailored to perfection, the marquis's birth and fortune are armour enough to defend Yvonne.
Although the girl is of the French bourgeoisie and below him, Miss Pym is a certain that Yvonne's Gallic graces and quick-witted tongue have more than piqued his interest.
After all, a maiden in distress is irresistible - even to a confirmed bachelor! 'Romance fans are in for a treat' - Booklist '[M. C. Beaton] is the best of the Regency writers' - Kirkus Reviews
